PROGRAMS OF STUDY

The curriculum of study at Wheelersburg High School is designed to provide either a sound background for post-secondary education or practical knowledge which can be utilized immediately upon graduation. A brief description of each course of study is included.

COLLEGE PREPARATORY PROGRAM

This program is for those who wish to continue their formal education beyond high school. The completion of this program with good grades should enable one to meet the requirements necessary to enter college. In addition to meeting requirements, a student may choose to specialize in one or more areas in conjunction with his or her future plans.

VOCATIONAL PROGRAM

The Scioto County Career Technical Center offers a wide range of academic and career technical courses with hands-on experience for juniors and seniors. Brochures giving full details of each area of study are given to sophomores each year. The Scioto County Career Technical Center is participating in an option identified as dual enrollment. Dual enrollment allows qualified high school seniors the opportunity to earn a year’s work of both high school and college academic credit at no cost through this very important program. The school also participates in Tech Prep articulation agreements, which recognize a seamless curricular pathway from the Scioto County Career Technical Center programs to an associate degree that leads to careers in a related technical field. This agreement enables graduates of the Scioto County Career Technical Center who successfully complete the academic and technical competencies required for each program to receive college credit for the specific course.

SPECIAL EDUCATION PROGRAM

Special education programs are designed to meet the needs of some students who are experiencing difficulty in the regular high school curriculum. Placement of students in these programs is arranged through the guidance office.

COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS

College Credit Plus is a program in which a student can take classes at a college or university and obtain high school credit and college credit at the same time. To be eligible, the student and his or her parents need to attend an informational meeting. Also, the student must be accepted by the college or university. Sample pathways are distributed at the College Credit Plus meeting.

FLEX CREDIT

Flex credit is designed to broaden the scope of curricular options available to students, increase the depth of study available for a particular subject, and tailor the learning time or conditions needed. Students must see the principal or guidance counselor before starting a Flex Credit program.
